Santo Season 2: Renewed or Cancelled – Will there be a Santo Season 2? – An infamous occultist kingpin named Santo, whose face has never been seen by anybody, is the target of a two-policeman manhunt in Netflix’s immense criminal drama Santo, which was set and filmed on two continents. Essentially, it’s a twisty-turny whodunit, but it moves along quickly and leaves many details purposefully vague.

Both critics and viewers gave “Santo” primarily favorable reviews, praising the main cast’s acting, the supernatural elements that elevated the criminal drama, and the compelling plot. After the first season concludes, one crucial question needs to be addressed: Will there be a second season of Santo? Let’s find out.

Santo Season 2 Renewed

Will there be a Santo Season 2?

The whole first season of “Santo” was made available on Netflix on September 16, 2022. Six episodes totaling 42–49 minutes each make up the first season.

Here is all we know thus far about the second season. Regarding the series’ future, Netflix has not yet made any formal announcements. The show’s second season will most certainly be produced, though, given that the first season ends on a cliffhanger. At the end of Season 1, Santo is shown holding Millán’s daughter Luca at gunpoint, probably to blackmail him. Since the season doesn’t provide a conclusion to the titular character’s journey, its conclusion can be interpreted as a preview of a future second season.

“Santo” is the first fictional Netflix series to be shot in Spain and Brazil, two of the streaming giant’s key international markets. The second round is nearly a guarantee if the first season of the show performs well in both nations. The season’s open-ending climax may have provided room for the sophomore campaign.

The first season’s cliffhanger of another Netflix crime series, “Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery,” which was ultimately renewed for a second season, did have a similar ending to this one. We expect that the streaming behemoth will be impressed by season 1’s audience and other elements to approve the Spanish show’s potential second season. If that occurs, we can anticipate the release of “Santo” season 2 sometime in the third or fourth quarter of 2024.

Having said that, funding “Santo” for Netflix can be costly, especially when the program needs to be filmed on two different continents or, for that matter, countries. Therefore, the first season’s success could be crucial in persuading Netflix to move forward with a second season. Another scenario is that Carlos Lopez and his team may have already begun filming the second season in anticipation of the renewal, which also explains the significance of the finale’s cliffhanger.

If Netflix approves the show’s second season, there will be a lot to cover in terms of the narrative. Following Santo’s instructions to save Luca could change Millán’s life. Cardona may eventually explain why she made an effort to free Santo from Millán’s gunpoint. On the other hand, Santo may attempt to continue building a drug empire in Spain despite the identity of the criminal being made public. The Spanish drug landscape may see the emergence of new significant figures who will challenge Santo. One cannot fault the viewers for anticipating the second season, given the breadth of the first season.
